STORFLOOD-CO2/Brine relative permeameter


The STORFLOOD is designed for research laboratories that study carbon dioxide geosequestration in deep saline aquifers as a solution to greenhouse gases emission reduction. Core-scale CO2/brine multiphase migration process is of great significance for precisely estimating storage efficiency, ensuring storage security, and predicting the long-term effects of the sequestered CO2 in subsurface saline aquifers. The system allows to simulate CO2 injection in a brine saturated sample. Both unsteady and steady state relative permeabilities between CO2 and brine are measured at reservoir-representative pressure and temperature conditions.
